Headaches & Migraines

Multiple stimuli cause chronic headaches and migraines. Some people have them due to genetics or stress-related circumstances. If you were recently in an accident, migraines or bad headaches could be a symptom of a serious injury.


Both migraines and headaches can significantly impact a person's quality of life, causing discomfort, interference with daily activities, and reduced productivity. Understanding the treatment options is essential for effective management and relief. Those experiencing headaches can benefit from our Brevard Chiropractic & Injury Center in Rockledge, FL.

Pain Generated from the Neck

Pain generated from the neck is a common condition caused by various factors, including musculoskeletal issues, nerve compression, and underlying medical conditions. Neck pain can range from mild discomfort to severe pain, and other symptoms like headaches, shoulder pain, numbness, and tingling in the arms may accompany it.

The head and neck consist of the nervous system, soft tissue, spinal cord, and various cushions known as cartilage. This muscle and bone can support the skull, move, rotate, and even hold a certain amount of weight.

However, when one or more factors malfunction, the inability to move can occur. Headaches can be generated across the skull by sources as distant as the lower neck and shoulders. In this regard, our chiropractor focuses on the alignment and proper motion of the neck and head to reduce the potential for headaches.

Types of Treatment Applied

Chiropractic care can be applied through manual spinal adjustment, corrective stretching and massage, and spinal decompression. The goal is to reduce pressure and allow the body’s circulation to work properly. This circulation will reduce the risk of pinching, swelling, and spasming muscles in the shoulder and neck area. These common issues can lead to serious, chronic headaches or migraines.

In the case of auto accident treatment, neck alignment and reduction of swelling are needed to help the body boost its healing activity. This treatment can combine muscle repair, nerve irritation, and swelling reduction.
